Boy, have I got a challenge on my hands. Reader Rachel E. sent in a request that would put my Get Over It gown-finding skills to the ultimate test.
She wrote, “I’ve never been the “dress” type and I’m quite frugal. I can’t justify spending a lot on something I will only wear one time. I don’t want to spend more than $150 to $200, so it might be a challenge!”
My CAI/GOI requests usually ask that the Get Over It gown picks be under $1000. But let’s get serious here… $1000 ain’t chump change, wedding or no wedding. So I think it’s awesome that our bride Rachel E. is sticking to her budget guns and requesting that I find a gown she’d actually put money down for.
The gown of her dreams is by Maggie Sottero, style #RD1086. It retails for about $800. Check out it’s beauty:
